The fully integrated roller blinds control daylight, heat and solar glare through the rooflight. The blinds are supported by thin, free-floating wires to create an invisible effect. Blinds are available with fire-retardant cloth in grey, white and black.
To support a fast and safe installation of the skylight solution, you can order the roller blinds pre-mounted from the factory.

Fritted glazing

With opal glazing, VELUX modular skylights create a subtle and uniform lighting without any glare. 
Fritted glazing is used to create a distinctive light/shadow effect inside the building and partly reduces glare.

VELUX modular skylights are available with electrochromic panes. The electrochromic pane is an insulated glazing unit with electronic, tintable coating. The coating can be darkened on demand by applying a low voltage of electricity. The dynamic changing in tint provides exceptional control of daylight, glare and energy use without blinds or shades.
An easy-to-use control system allows anyone to operate the electrochromic panes with wall switches, a mobile app or with a building management system. A combination of the three is also possible.
